I wanted to let everyone know that my first novel is up for sale in the Kindle store for $.99. The book is called `The Grove' and it's a dark and suspenseful rural crime/mystery novel with some quiet horror and noir elements.
You can find it here:
Here's a blurb and a brief description if you're interested:
"Spare and evocative as a cornfield in autumn, The Grove marks the arrival of a haunting, powerful new voice in contemporary fiction. John Rector writes with deceptive grace, spinning out irresistible prose with a dark pulse between every line. This is psychological suspense at its most seductive. I loved it."
-Sean Doolittle, award-winning author of Dirt, Burn, Rain Dogs, The Cleanup, and Safer
The last time farmer Dexter McCray went off his medication, someone wound up dead. So, after waking from an alcoholic blackout to discover his tractor stuck in a ditch and the body of a teenage girl in the cottonwood grove bordering his cornfield, things look worryingly familiar.
With no alibi and a creeping suspicion that he might indeed be guilty, Dexter decides to investigate the crime himself. He can't tell anybody. Not his friend, the sheriff, who keeps offering to help him winch his tractor out of the ditch. Nor his estranged wife, whose love he's desperate to win back. And certainly not the Tollivers, his redneck neighbors.
Fortunately, Dexter's not entirely alone. He has some help.
In the shape of the dead girl herself.
If you like the book, please help me spread the word.
Many thanks, and I hope you enjoy the novel.
